Our Michigan pedestrian car accident lawyers represent pedestrians injured in auto accidents. There are many reasons that these serious injury accidents occur, including:
- Distracted drivers not paying attention to pedestrians
- Night time visibility affecting the driver’s ability to see the pedestrian
- Right turn on red accidents where drivers are not looking for pedestrians
- Pedestrians crossing in areas not marked with crosswalks
- Drivers driving at excessive speeds and carelessly
A pedestrian injured in a Michigan car accident does have legal rights. First, the injured pedestrian can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. This includes claims for damages such as for pain and suffering, disability, and scarring or permanent disfigurement.
Also, the injured pedestrian can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits. These include claims for payment of medical bills, lost wages, household services, and attendant care services. If the person injured in the accident was a pedestrian, the victim can obtain No-Fault Insurance benefits even he or she did not own a vehicle or have an auto insurance policy.
